24th Annual EAU Congress highlights many new developments
Date:2/5/2009

The 24th Annual Congress of the European Association of Urology (EAU) will be held from 17 to 21 March 2009 in the Stockholm International Fairs (SE). The EAU aims to present the best of scientific results, lectures and educational courses; the scientific programme covers the whole range of the urological field. Chairman of the EAU Scientific Congress Office Professor Freddie Hamdy has identified several scientific highlights.

In Stockholm the EAU expects to welcome an estimated 10,000 delegates and 3,000 exhibitors.

According to Professor Hamdy highlights include, among other things, the State-of-the-art lecture 'Watchful waiting versus radical prostatectomy - an updated from the SPCG-4 trial' by Professor Lars Holmberg from Uppsala (SE), held from 8:15 to 8:35 hours on Friday, 20 March. "In 2005 the researchers reported that radical prostatectomy improved prostate cancer survival compared with watchful waiting after a median of 8.2 years of follow-up. Now results after 3 more years of follow-up are reported", he says.

The lecture 'The PCA3 test in the diagnosis of prostate cancer' by Dr. Monique Roobol from Rotterdam (NL) Friday 20 March from 9:20 to 9:35 hours gives an overview of the value of the Prostate Cancer Antigen 3 (PCA3) test for clinical applications based on the available literature and new data. The serum PSA value is the most commonly used marker in the detection and monitoring of prostate cancer, but prostate cancer is present throughout the entire PSA spectrum; this was confirmed by the biopsy results in men randomised to the control arm of the Prostate Cancer Prevention Trial (PCPT). Developments in molecular biology techniques have led to the identification of numerous genes and proteins that are believed to be relevant for the development of prostate cancer. This has resulted in a commercially available gene-based test, the PCA3 test.

On the same day, from 10:05 to 10:25 hours, Dr. Martin Gleave will
